Dear Lorraine

You were very ill, and it sounds as if your condition has effected your lungs as well as your upper respiratory tract. It would be advisable to have an ENT as well as a Pulmonologist look at your condition as a whole, as one is clearly affecting the other. Regarding your symptoms of itching and your hands, you need advice from a physician, (your doctors would have looked at this), as this seems to be of a more systeminc nature.
It would be a good idea to consult your ENT at this stage, as you now require a more longterm plan for the management of your runny nose and sore throat.
